    I've got a VHS copy of the old Batman movie w/ Adam West.

    The only one I liked was the very first one with Keaton. The second one was OK; but after that?..... YECH!

    I found the DVD in the Wal-Mart Bargain Bin for $5. Sweet!

    When I was little, before we had a VCR or cable TV, one of the local stations would sometimes run the old Batman movie late at night. I remember begging and begging my parents to let me stay up and watch it, but they never did.

    The first one was ok. They got progressivley worse after that. The new one is by far the best. I do loves me some campy Adam West Batman, though.

    Michelle Pfeiffer looked awfully good in the Catwoman outfit.

    Along with a weekly classic film and cartoon, The Kentucky Theater in Lex. is showing a 15 chapter, 1943 Columbia Pictures serial called "The Batman." Talk about a cheap and cheesily funny production! Ed Wood-bad is a good description. An actor named Lewis Wilson plays Batman and a young curly-haired kid w/ skinny legs named Douglas Croft is Robin. J. Carroll Naish plays the Japanese spy, Daka. Racism abounds, of course, as this was made during WWII. I've seen Chap. 10 (Flying Spies) and Chap. 11 (A Nipponese Trap). They certainly made the cartoons and classic movies that followed look that much better.

    I guesss I'm in the minority, but I really didn't like any of the Batman movies (haven't seen the latest). I saw the two Keaton movies, and that was enough.

    I know the first Keaton batman movie was popular, but to me, it just didn't make sense. No character development and the "plot" about the joker poisoning makeup or whatever was pretty weak. I guess it was ok if you only wanted to see the Batmobile drop bombs and the BatWing airplane thing silhouetted against the moon, but I just didn't think it was that great.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!
